Items and Accounts

I'm new to all this accounting stuff ... so be gentle, please. I'd welcome materials to read, web or other.
I'm a sole proprietor consultant. I want to track reimbursable expenses and
associate them with invoices. Sometimes, then, I discount them back out.
My CoA looks like this:
4900 reimbursed expenses -- income 4901 air 4902 hotel ...
5000 Project Related Costs -- COGS 5100 ?? 5200 Reimbursable Expenses - COGS
Then I was thinking that I could log the expenses under 5200 (probably expanding to add air hotel and such), and associate them with invoices. (i'm not planning to use jobs)
Advice, please?
